In commemoration of the sacrifices of the people of the Newfoundland and Labrador during the First World War, the Royal Canadian Mint has released a new 1 oz highly pure silver coin, featuring forget-me-not flowers on both sides of the coin.

Forget-me-not flowers are a hardy species that blooms blue, which is the color of loyalty, courage, endurance, and valor.

The design of the new coin is a blend of different engraving techniques. It's a sweeping tribute to the thousands who fought under the banner of the Dominion of Newfoundland in battles at places like Beaumont-Hamel in France.

The reverse features a trail of forget-me-not flowers to symbolize a spirit of remembrance. A multitude of flowers pours from the rocky province to wrap around its rugged coast and surround the animal emblem of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. Perched on a crag overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the caribou faces east towards the Beaumont-Hamel battlefield that is a symbol of wartime valor and sacrifice for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. The reverse includes the year of issue, 2019, and the monetary denomination, 20 dollars.

The obverse displays a laser-engraved pattern of forget-me-not flowers behind the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

This coin is struck in 99.99% pure silver, with a proof finish. It has a limited mintage of only 5000 coins.
